BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A parking space for cars has become a parking space for pedestrians in front of the Herald building in downtown Bellingham.

The local non-profit Sustainable Connections parked a couple of benches and some large potted plants in front of the building on State Street.

The owner of the building will pay the city to make up for lost parking fees.

They hope it will bring more foot traffic to downtown businesses.

The portable “parklet” decorated the front of Dashi Noodle bar on State Street last year, and it was in front of La Fiamma pizza on Railroad Avenue in 2012.
